Muslims refuse to allow Copts to pray in a meeting of the Family House

After a meeting of the family house in Sohag in the presence of the governor and security senior officials, extremists in Naghamish village refused to allow the Copts to pray in the service building carrying the name of St. George. This came after 14 men were arrested on charges of attacking and burning Coptic houses in the village.

The officials asked the Copts to file lawsuit in order to reopen the building. On the other hand, the Copts denounced the extremism of the Muslim families and that they refuse to allow the Coptic Christians to pray in the village.
